TAMIL NADU – Fashion giant H&M Group has signed a legally-binding agreement with one of India’s largest garment suppliers to put an end to sexual violence and harassment against women, following the death of a 20-year-old worker last year.

The terms of the agreement state that all factory workers, supervisors and executives at Natchi Apparel, in Kaithian Kottai, Tamil Nadu, must participate in gender-based violence training.

Julia Bakutis, of H&M’s global social sustainability team, said: “H&M Group wants to do our utmost to contribute to systemic and positive change in the industry and have therefore signed an agreement to work together with industry stakeholders to address, prevent and remedy gender-based violence and sexual harassment. We expect this agreement to contribute to a broader industry-wide initiative going forward.”
